    I agree. it would separate the kids from the adults, but that's just my opinion also.

    What exactly is mosh, and how does one go about getting it into a pit?

    Maybe we ought to pick out one pbp guy and one "color" guy per day to do the games and only give them access to post in that thread. It would be an honor to post in the thread. Could do someone that has ORG priviledges doing the pbp and a RL member doing the color commentary. Maybe that way those two would get to know each other a little better and we could establish a more friendly atmosphere instead of the chaotic college bar scene it is now.
    What an interesting and creative idea ...I'd only allow those 2 to do their jobs and allow others to comment, but very interesting...

    In addition, this thread is proof of why this site works and is special...folks are INVESTED here, it's part of what draws me here each day

    It occurs naturally when you start playing songs with 4/4 timing.

    It's a soft, pulpy mass usually created in the pit by energetically mixing and beating the original contents of the pit, most often driven by the rhythm of music being played nearby.

    Re: Game thread forum a mess...

    Coffey gave up that grand slam when I was on my way home, listening to the game. I remember thinking that the game thread was about the last thing I would want to look at when I got home.

    We have had periods over the last seven years where people have ranted and then ranted about the ranting. It never stops, but I will say that I am really surprised by it this time. The Reds are moving in the right direction- they have an energetic owner who wants to win ballgames and who is not afraid to take the team in a direction. I understand the idea that they have decided to strengthen the defense as a way to improve pitching in lieu of spending money they don't have to compete in the overpriced FA market.

    The Reds are NOT ready to be the great ballclub that fans want. True, they locked up two great pitchers and have had some pleasant surprises this year, so far. But they are still saddled with problems created by the previous ownership/FO (I can think of two LTC's in particular) and you can't expect that they are going to excel until they can get those things way behind them. The Reds are still basically an inferior team in many important aspects and winning baseball games at the major league level boils down to the talent you have throughout your system. I am realistic about the Reds. I hope they win the NL Central, but I understand that this is an awfully tall order, whether Jerry Narron or Lou Pinella is the manager.

    What surprises me is that so many people with so much baseball knowledge, many of whom write some great things on this board, are so down about the Reds. If being a fan made me so angry I'd think of something else to do.

    If one poster is designated as doing PbP, couldn't you click on his name, then click on "see all posts by"? Then in a few seconds the game thread minus chatter would load for you. Of course, you'd have to scroll from bottom to top to make it work chronologically...

    That seems a lot of work when it would be far easier for just one person to give the PBP particulars...

    What exactly is the "mission statement" for the gamethread? Is it supposed to duplicate the experience of watching/listening to the game for those who can't, or is it supposed to duplicate the experience of watching the game with a bunch of other Reds fans? 'Cause it seems like we have people who want it to be one or the other...

    I agree. I participate in maybe 1 or 2 game threads per week. It's a way to relax and talk about the action as it happens. I also read them the next day if I missed the game the day before.

    If there's too many rules, why would anyone want to participate?

    Maybe we should have a regular game thread, and a special sanitized one for those that want only play by play or whatever. If all you want is play by play.. why not just read game tracker?

    I like the emotion during the game thread. Not the personal attacks, but the show of emotion.. Even if it's 20 posts in a row cheering a Dunn HR.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!
